Our friends Karl Schatz and Margaret Hathaway, of Ten Apple Farm in Gray, are hosting an apple tree pruning workshop at the farm this Sunday, January 24, from 1-4pm, which they’re doing in conjunction with the Lakes Region Permaculture group. Dave Homa, who has pruned trees professionally, will be showing us how to prune our apple trees while they are in their winter dormancy in order to improve their ongoing health and productivity. The event will include discussion of techniques, common mistakes and suggested tools. Handouts will be provided. The session is expected to run about 3 hours, including an hour outside pruning (so dress warm and in layers), and will be followed by the sharing of a potluck meal (please bring a dish to share). There is a $5 fee that covers the Permaculture group’s Meetup costs. Bring pruners or loppers if you have them. There is a limit of 15 people, and there are 7 spots still available. Email or call if interested or if you have any questions.
